Approximately 24km north of Melaka, a little off the road to Kuala Lumpur, is the countryside town of Alor Gajah. The peaceful and grassy Alor Gajah Square- Surrounded by a series of cheerily painted shop houses- is located in the town centre. Within this locale is the 520-hectare A’ Famosa Resort – Well-liked by Malay and Singaporean Tourists. Not to be confused with the A’ Famosa Fort, this hotel encompasses 1,300 acres of land and can only be described as major theme park. There are several amusement parks within it including Animal World Safari, Water World and Cowboy Town.
